I've noticed a lot of people sharing those motivational image thingies on Facebook about relationships, lately... And all of them are 90% about how people in relationships constantly fight (emphasis on "constantly"). They talk about people in relationships always screaming at each other, crying, slamming doors and throwing things, sleeping in separate rooms, and how perfectly normal and healthy it all is because hey, at the end of the day, they're who you come home to and it's true love or whatever.|
I've been with my current boyfriend for three years, and I've been living with him for two and a half. In our entire relationship, we've never fought about anything. We've had disagreements on some things, but it's always boiled down to "Okay, I understand where you're coming from, and I don't really agree but I totally get why you feel the way you do." Literally the only argument we've ever had-- and continue to have-- is that no, honey, you can't build a Death Star and man it with thousands of puppies who you trained to shoot laser beams, that's not even in our budget right now.
TQC, am I doing something wrong? Is there some sort of relationship fight quota we've been missing all these years? Are we going to break up because we get along too well? Should I save our relationship by picking a fight with him when he comes home tonight from his 10-hour Black Friday retail shift? (Purely non-serious answers are most definitely welcome.)
